Free streaming media via Hoopla and your library card

Hoopla

Hoopla

After we wrapped up the Fall 2013 season of Technology and the Arts, we were made aware of a recently launched media streaming service called Hoopla that allows those with library cards at participating libraries to stream digital music, video and audiobooks for free. According to Hoopla’s web site, users can “gain access to thousands of titles—available for instant streaming or temporary download—and watch on your smartphone, tablet or computer.”

The list of participating libraries is currently on the small side, but if your library isn’t listed, tell the staff about Hoopla so it can find out more about the service and, perhaps, become a participant.

We’ll be sure to keep an eye on Hoopla’s development and discuss it when Technology and the Arts returns in 2014.
